“Our first cost down step replaced the traditional multilayer PCB of the PA08xxNL series with a helical flat coil, reducing the direct current resistance (DCR) by 50%, leading to both a 20% increase in power handling capability and 20% reduction in price,” explained Gerard Healy, Product Manager, Pulse Electronics Power Business Unit. “The PH08xxCNL series offers a further 20% price reduction by replacing the inserted pins with a pinned header.”

The PH08xxCNL series has a different pad layout to the earlier series so it is the recommend and most cost-effective solution for new designs. This series is available in T&R packaging with starting prices of just $2.99. Lead time is approximately eight weeks, and samples are available upon request.
